Staff is great, super friendly. The Hub was always my home away from home when in Kyiv! Rissana and her staff always go out of their way to help travelers, even with language troubles. They all speak excellent English, which is a help in Ukraine still-they even would order food for me!

This place has everything: cheap, nice rooms; a great location not too far from the central train station; and really sweet folks running it. There's a real community feel where people from all over hang out. just a real hip place to chill out and a great base for exploring Kyiv.

I have had the pleasure of staying at The Hub in its old & new location, during on & off peak times, as a customer & as an acquaintance so I feel confident in my review as I have seen it at work in a variety of ways.

had an amazing experience at the hub! not only the hostel was very nice and clean and safe, people there are truly amazing. they've answered all of my questions about Kyiv, before directing me to a restaurant receptionist asked me what i like to eat, what is my budget and even how far i'm willing to walk! as a result...

Great for Peace Corps volunteers -- great discount. I was there while they were renovating the kitchen, so I look forward to seeing the place when it's complete. It seems to attract a random mix of foreigners and Ukrainians. Overall good experience -- very close to train station.

There are few places in the world that can offer either quality hospitality, good prices, or competitive beer pong - and the Hub is somehow able to manage all three. The staff are absolutely wonderful, offering both a warm welcome and guidance through the city, and the extracurriculars - beer pong, crawls, beersbee - can make any weary traveler feel... More

I stayed here for five nights. It's a 10-minute walk from the central railroad station and 20-25 minutes from Independence Square (central Kiev). The staff members are really friendly and eager to help with anything you might need (I asked them many times to decode Cyrillic on goods I'd bought in town). The bunk beds are clean and slightly larger... More

Hadn't had a hostel experience for a long time and The Hub was a great place to get back into the swing of budget travel. The rooms are spare, as one might expect, but comfortable and the staffers were exceptionally helpful. There are nice common areas like a kitchen and a couple of comfy lounges populated by interesting people from... More
